It's time yet again for another amazing Friday music round-up

(CBS News) It's Friday everyone!  Which means we've got some amazing music for you here on The Feed. This week was actually tougher than normal. Not because of a lack of material, but actually because there was just too much to choose from. So I hope you all like the editorial choices that your blogger here has made. Kicking things off, we have Canadian music group Grimes with a brand-new music video for their song "Genesis".  I should let you  know in advance that it's a bit "out there" and there's a build-up to music (which kicks in at about 1:10), but the song and aesthetics are totally worth it. Take a look and listen. 

So, yeah, it has kind of a "Lost Highway" thing going on at the beginning. Which is totally fine. I'm down with it. I dig me some David Lynch. But once you get past the build-up, there is simply no denying that the music and visuals are pretty beautiful and unique. Which has made Grimes a band I'm now watching, listening and loving, and hope you all are, too.

Up next in our trip down music lane, we have a stunning music video above that took a lot of time, effort and passion on the part of the creators. Made over the course of 6 months, and having to spend 6-8 hours of work for 3-4 seconds of footage at a time, I present to you "Dream Music: Part 2" by Marc Donahue and Sean Michael Williams.  Along with the obviously incredible visuals, I found the shift in the actual styles of music during the course of the video to be fascinating and pretty seamless. Marc Donahue and Sean Michael Williams write about their latest work:

Our goal was to pioneer a new film genre by telling a story through art and music. Part 2 was made to transport the viewer from their own reality into a world of dreams and at the end, they awake to wonder how we were able to take them there. Each scene was born from the symbolic meaning of the lyrics and overall message of the film; Time is the illusion within the dream of life.

And as we like to have diversity in our musical work on display here at The Feed, we turn our attention for our next video to an endearing, acoustic original entitled "Simple Life" from an artist by the name of Pierce Abrams we happened to come across.  Watch. Listen. Love. 

And last, but definitely not least (there is no "least" in our weekly round-up of music!), we end on something of a double classic note from YouTube user stewboz83.  Why is it "double classic" you ask?  Well, it's classic once because the video dates back to 2007, and twice because it is a spectacular piano rendition of The Who's legendary song "Baba O'Riley".  Hope you all enjoy and make sure to keep coming back to The Feed for all your viral video needs!
